Taking Time To Write

Good evening, everyone.  This is a personal entry.  I’m content right now.  Sunnyville #17 is done, the Kickstarter for that comic wraps up tomorrow morning and I’m finally doing something I have been wanting to do for ages.

I’m writing a novel.

I started sometime ago by writing an outline with a basic plot and summary.  I have worked since early this morning typing my novel.  My goal is to finish it by next Sunday evening.  The strategy I’m following is to work at it by typing at least 5,000 words daily but aiming for an optimal number of 10,000 words daily.

That is doable based on the advice from the book 9 Day Novel.  Consider that a novel is at least 40,000 to 50,000 words and usually goes higher than that.  A typical novel may run up to 80,000 words or more.

If all goes well, I have notes for a sequel to this novel and ideas for many more.  I hope to have more news about the novel’s progress next week.

Wish me luck, everyone!
